The State-of-Mindfulness Programs are offered by LEMNISCEIGHT, LLC.  Currently training in Koru Mindfulness Meditation is being offered.   Koru is an evidence based mindfulness program intially developmentally tailored for the emerging adult age group between 18 and 27 years old.  The techniques taught in Koru are centuries old and have been proven beneficial to all age groups.

Koru was developed by two Duke University psychiatrists: Holly Rogers MD and Margaret Maytan MD.  Margaret’s recent research has shown the effectiveness of Koru for ages 28 and above.  Further details regarding Koru Mindfulness and Meditation, and research supporting it’s efficacy, in a variety of age groups, can be found via the LINKS tab in the menu.  This will direct you to the website where you can find links to peer reviewed journal articles on the benefits of mindfulness.

The upcoming 2017-2018 4-week Koru Mindfulness Meditation workshops in the Greater Lansing & Okemos areas in Michican will be taught by Deb, a certified Koru teacher.  The workshops consist of four 75 minutes held each week.  Please contact Debra via text 517-927-7894 or email: prior to registering via the “” link below.

As Koru Mindfulness workshops are quite popular I encourage you to register no later than 2-days prior to the start of class via the “Sign Up For A Class” link here or in the menu to the left.  Please do this after you have made contact with Debra, so that classes are not overbooked.  The “Sign Up For A Class” link will direct you to the registration website:  The cost for the entire four week workshop is $75.  Course information appears at the end of this website.  You are welcome to print off the flyer and informational handout to distribute to potential course participants, if you wish.

Please do consider these workshops, I would love to have you join me and share these skills with you.  Past participants have found the skills taught in Koru to be personally empowering.

If you have further questions, please contact either Deb at or via text at 517-927-7894.

Looking forward to serving you.

Mindfully Yours
